Our F1 Savannah Cattery

I am Doreen Boileau, one of the first and “Original” breeders that have been breeding since the Savannah breed was in experimental days! At Drinkwater Cattery, I am proud of my work raising quality, healthy, and friendly F1 SAVANNAH cats all TICA registered since 1997. I specialize in the F1 generation. All babies fully guaranteed and come with inoculations and health certificates. All my Cats and kittens are registered with TICA, My cattery is also registered with TICA, and I am a long-time holder of a Class II Florida Fish and Wildlife License. I have a vet inspected “Cattery of Excellence” issued by a licensed exotic cat vet Dr. Diane Perry. You must pick-up my Savannahs in person, I do not ship them! Scams will say they ship kittens buyer beware! Private transport can be arranged for those who cannot come pick up in Florida. We are located in the Tampa, Florida area. Drinkwater Cattery is a FeLV/FIV and Tritrichomonas Negative cattery. Stud Service is Not offered.

21 Year old Savannah bred by Drinkwater

I bred this boy 21 years ago and he is still alive looking good! F1 Savannahs looks have much improved over the years, but this boy is an early foundation F1 that is living to a ripe old.

The Pool Area

Where the cats take a “dip” in the pool on hot, sunny days.

The Gazebo

A great, shady place to enjoy the kittens

The Nursery

My favorite room, our babies are birthed here and stay until 8 weeks old. These are pens made for birthing, then kitten learns to leave the nest and crawl into the litter box for good, early litter box habits. We have camera and sound security over our cattery, so I always know what is going on and can keep a close eye on all the cats and kittens. This room has sunlight and cross ventilation of fresh breezes and wildlife sounds.

The PVC Birthing Pens

6 ft. long pens are easy to bleach down and keep clean.

Inside Play Areas

We have several inside play areas that are 14 by 14 with cat trees, tunnels, and toys.


She is a Fawnequin, quite a rare color in Danes. She is a wonderful pet. We do not breed Great Danes.


She is a Harlequin Great Dane puppy and very special to us as our pet and playmate for Dakota. She has a brown eye and a grey-colored eye.

My Great Dane Boston

On July 11th, 2013 I lost my dear Boston to Lymphoma. I will never be the same without her at my side. Rest in Peace my sweet Boston. Boston’s Memorial and ashes are in the flower garden, one of her favorite places at our home.
